    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Many happy Returns to our special Easyfish!!

    From yesterday;

    "I'm curious about "blowsy" - where I come from it means dowdy, frumpy, sloppy - is that what it means to you, too? From the context I'm thinking it's not, exactly ...but you never know! I love both Lipstick Rose and Drole de Rose btw. It's their girly, flirty retro-glamour that appeals to me, but they do require the proper mood and situation ...especially LR, which can be a bit flamboyant, while DdR is more on the coy side and you can definately take her more places, lol.

    How interesting! Sorry I couldn't get back to you yesterday. You have answered your own question really. You know, I checked the original meaning of blowsy and your definition is right. In fact is was originally quite a rude word, but it is not used in that way in common usage here at all any more!! I can see how it has evolved. At one stage it may have meant "vulgar" but it doesn't really mean that now. It is not an offensive word. It often used to describe flowers. It sort of means pretty but a bit overblown. An example would be the appearance of large headed frilly Peonies, they are often decribed as blowsy. You hit the nail on the head with your comparison with DdR being "more coy and you can take her more places". LR is glorious though isn't she? But DrR is a bit more, well, demure.

    Ramon Monegal L'Eau de Rose today. It is shining like a beacon of hope in the Winter cold.

    Good afternoon. It's -2 outside. I'm staying home to catch up on cataloguing.

    SOTD is Micallef Gardenia. It reminds me of debutantes for some reason... very lady-like. So, today's image is Jackqueline Bouvier, 1947.

    Good morning everyone -

    I'm in a soft cloud of No22, vintage parfum and edt.

    Y'all have a great day!




    turquoisewater, today's your wedding day?? That's wonderful! (Thanks, Jon!) Wishing you both joy, happiness and love, always.

    Happy birthday dear easyfish, happy birthday to you ...and many more!

    Thanks for the confirmation Foustie - that's what I thought. I have several perfumes that could be considered that sort of "blowsy" ...certainly more flattering than the original meaning, but I still have to be careful about where I take them.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Bathed which called for a change in fragrance.

    Off topic but when did Les Exclusifs de Chanel become available to buy online in the US? Hopefully they'll be available online in Europe soon.

    Happy Birthday easyfish - wow, your b'day falls on 12/12/12. I suggest at 12:12 this afternoon you have a glass of champagne!

    Happy Birthday to easyfish (Jon, it would have been my dad's birthday too). Mike P, you are all celebratory -- in some Slovic languages "Sova" means "owl" -- the image that easyfish likes so much in VC&A interpretation and on Q.'s birthday cake.

    Turquoisewater, many happy years together to you and Mr.!


    That shopping yesterday was excellent -- once again, it made me humble and grateful for what I have already got: family, health, friends, job(s) and the other lady -- happy.

    I bit the bullet and ordered that Guerlain from the Wishlist. Should be here in 7-9 days.
